The alcoholic as critic. 13 Dec. 2004
By Elvirus - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am drunk right now. I am listening to this record right now. It is beautiful. Play it loud. Dance like a goon. Wag your head back and forth. Spin around. Wake up naked in your kitchen. Feels good. This is rock and troll for the Nintendo generation. BLAST. Pitch, roll, dive. Judicious use of the pitch quantizer effect. Dammit, where is my Casio? I am inspired! GET THIS RECORD. Pour yourself a martini. Extra olives, please. One-man rave in a dark apartment in Manchester, New Hampshire. Face-plant on the leather couch. Emmmmmm. Emmmmmm.

Sounds Good, Looks Good, Feels Good Too! 1 April 2003
By Brett D. Cullum - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A word on this retro debate,and then on to the album ...
I was there in the 80s listening to Kraftwerk and Visage as they came out (cough cough). Fischerspooner is a throwback in style in much the same way Lenny Kravitz is a throwback to the 60s. There are definite influences here from the 80s, but this is a reinvention of the form! These two art students are doing something very fresh and new. This ain't no rehash, and certainly is no Sigue Sigue Sputnik (as one reviewer mentioned).
It's a damn good dance album, but it also has more than one mode. Often you just get one beat, and one mood for an entire CD when you buy an electronic album. But Fischerspooner varies their songs enough to make you feel like you're in an album and not just in a club. Not since Schiller or Enigma have I experienced the whole album with a dance artist as much as I did this one. But the high point definitely hits with EMERGE. It's a single that stays in your head on a loop for days.
Snap up the limited edition with the DVD. You get all the videos and documentary footage that will make it all worth it! Join the revolution here! :-) Fight the boring dance music, and get into something punky fresh and new. Even if half the world is grooving to this as a VH-1 commercial! But you gotta admit the song is better than anything they play!

#1. Simply The ONE! 3 Mar. 2003
By Dogville - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Casey Spooner said he formed the band with Warren Fisher as he was going through mid-life crisis. What a good crisis that was! 'Cause Fischerspooner "is the best thing that has happended to music since electricity." They absolutely blew minds away!

If you like what they have done for others in the form of remixes, you've heard nothing yet as their own music is nothing but #1. It's a lethal combination of that 80's post-modern punk wave sound pumped up to some delicious synthesizers and punctuated with beats, bleeps and sonic-space effects. It's an awesome tribute to the punk-rock synthesizer tunes of yesteryear without ever losing sight of that 21st century electronic triump.

A very good reason to snap this limited edition is the bonus full-length DVD containing the 2003 version of the EMERGE video. This is a fraking classic video with an eclectic mix of stunning visuals with interceptions of slow-mo, b/w and color. There's also a whole bunch of extras like documentary, remixes and more. This is one hell of a value-for-money package. If you haven't picked this up, you are missing a great deal!

BEST CD EVER 27 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you are thinking about buying this album at all, I suggest you do it now. I'm just saying, this is about as good as it gets. The first 5 songs are excellent, excellent, excellent. Fischerspooner's cover of wire's "the 15th," is beautiful and more fluid than the original. You probably already know how good "emerge" is, so I won't go on (read: it's the BEST!). There are 2 hidden tracks at the end- a hilarious song which I believe is titled "megacolon" and a remix of emerge. Both of these tracks make you jump up and dance. The DVD is super-entertaining as well. If you like synth and electro, #1 is a great buy because the songs are catchy, yet complex and separate enough from each other to stay with you.

Pop Deconstructionism at its best 26 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I first listened to #1 a few months ago when I found the European release at a local record shop. I was then, and am still amazed by the work that Casey Spooner and Warren Fischer are yeilding. Considering that Fischerspooner was essentially just an experiment between two art students that knew nothing about electronic music, the end product is, to say the least, inspiring. All songs on this album are catchy, and well done without being over produced. Sweetness is a great opening track, and the perfect introduction to the energy of the group. Emerge is a great pop song, and is responsible for most of F.S's commerical success. In my opinion, Megacolon (track 12) summarizes everything about this band, and you either get that, or you don't. The bonus DVD/EP is reason enough to buy this release. With all the videos to date, a documentary, countless bonus features and a full extended play of Emerge remixes (as well as a 15th, and Invisible re-working) theres no reason not to be satisfied. Like Electro-clash, New Wave, Tech Pop? It doesn't matter. Buy this album.
